While we may not have had our first snowfall in the Hamptons yet, it's still incredibly charming here during the holidays.
To highlight the area's exquisiteness, the East Hampton Chamber of Commerce will present its 26th Annual Holiday Tour of Inns, B&Bs, and other interesting places on Saturday, December 10th. The self-guided exploration of the East End will begin at 12 p.m. at the Huntting Inn in East Hampton and continue through 4 p.m.
Tourgoers will travel to popular East Hampton locales, including the Pollock-Krasner House
, Guild Hall
, and East Hampton Historical Society
's Clinton Academy - one of the first academies in New York State chartered by the Board of Regents, as well as various historic inns and notable bed and breakfasts that will be festively decorated for the season. The trees will be trimmed, the garland and wreathes abundant and the seasonal spirit will be so overwhelming you might just want to break out into a carol. As if the holiday cheer isn't enough, hot chocolate, seasonal sweets and refreshments will be served at each bed and breakfast and inn.
East Hampton Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Steven Ringel is absolutely delighted to show off East Hampton and is always "looking forward to finding creative ways to bring people downtown during the winter and spring to support local businesses and also to unite communities and people through this event and others."

In addition to offering unparalleled access to several beloved spots, you might want to fit in some seasonal shopping since several East Hampton stores will be offering special discounts in conjunction to the event.
And, don't say the East Hampton Chamber has never gotten you anything - because the Holiday Tour, which is normally $25, is complimentary this year, so you're really not going to want to miss it. Whether you're a local or visitor, the Tour is a great opportunity to learn a little more about the places that make East Hampton the wonderful village that it is.
Huntting Inn is located at 94 Main Street in East Hampton. For more information, contact the East Hampton Chamber of Commerce at 631-324-0362 or visit www.easthamptonchamber.com.
